The Relationship between Self-Efficacy and Preference to Pursue a Career as an Overseas Filipino Worker

Frederick Edward T. Fabella

Abstract: This study was conducted to ascertain whether a relationship exists between perceived self-efficacy and preference to pursue an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) career. The New General Self-Efficacy Scale was used to measure perceived self-efficacy. The level of preference to pursue an OFW career was measured using the OFW Career Preference Questionnaire - a researcher-made instrument. 153 college students from the Province of Rizal, Philippines volunteered to take part in this study. An online Google Forms version of both questionnaires was administered on the respondents. Pearson r computation of the scores from both research instruments yielded a low negative relationship between self-efficacy and respondents’ preference to pursue an OFW career.
